What is Retinol?
Retinoids are a Vitamin A derivative that support cellular turnover in the skin to improve a variety of skin conditions. Retinoids are commonly used as a chemical exfoliant to help remove dead skin cells that sit on top of the skin revealing fresher, brighter skin. Removing part of the skins natural barrier allows specialty products to absorb deeper into the skin, maximizing your aesthetic results.
